New Delhi: Delhi Capitals have not been able to show anything special in IPL-2023 so far. This team is finding it very difficult to go to the playoffs. To stay in this race, Delhi needs to win every match. With this intention, this team came against Punjab Kings at their home Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday and in this match, its captain David Warner’s bat went on. Warner played a half-century in this match.
Delhi bowlers did not allow Punjab to score too big. Batting first, the Punjab team could score only 167 runs after losing seven wickets. This score was possible for him due to opener Prabhsimran Singh. Prabhsimran scored 103 runs. Although Warner could not win his team.
